Jean-Jacques Annaud

Producer, director and co-writer Jean-Jacques Annaud won an Academy Award in 1977 for Best Foreign Film with his debut feature, Black and White in Color/La Victoire En Chantant.

His next feature was Coup de tate, a success in Europe, followed by Quest for Fire, a grueling portrait of primitive man, which earned him a Cesar Award as Best Director. Next, he directed The Name of the Rose. a medieval tale of monastery murder starring Sean Connery, which received a Cesar Award for Best Foreign Film. Annaud also co-wrote the screenplays for the latter two films with his longtime collaborator, Alain Godard.

In 1989, Annaud received international acclaim and another Cesar Award for The Bear, an engrossing story of a bear's struggle against hunters.

Annaud's most recent films include The Lover; Wings of Courage, the first feature film made in IMAX 3-D; and Seven Years in Tibet, starring Brad Pitt.
